Deeside Thistle / Bikelife 25 Mile Time Trial


A dull and not very warm (6 to 7C) day, with little breeze for the Bikelife 25 today. But there was some, really outstanding stuff, especially from winner Jon Copp, and more especially from 70yr old Derek “Dastardly Dick” Stewart who had an all-time Personal Best, first time under the hour!, with a fine 59.52 (+22.38 up on his age std).

This race was originally to be organised by Ian Brodie who sadly recently passed away whilst on a cycling holiday in Mallorca.

Jonathan Copp.

Note: One rider/one prize rule.
Timing Recording: Nobby Clarke / Mary Lindsay / Bob Gibson (GS Corsa)

Sportsmen in general, and cyclists are no different in this respect, are a superstitious lot.

Sunday morning dawned bright, clear and sunny as sixty teams of two warmed up for the Fullarton Wheelers Ice Breaker 2-Up Time Trial on the outskirts of Irvine, and the unseasonably favourable weather was the omen that most had looked for.
